Consumerism Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Consumerism's running through'em like a tumor in'em
Ageism, sexism, racism, chauvinism
Capitalism running through them like the rumour business
Separatism, scepticism, modernism, atheism
Television running through them like an organism
Mechanism, despotism, poisoning the ecosystem
Satanism running through them like a politician
Hedonism, hypocrism, nihilism, narcissism
Egotism running through them needing exorcism
Situation hedonism, adversary demonism
To fix forms of religious spontaneity is a bad decision
Catholicism, Darwinism, barbarism, formalism
European fetishisms, terrorism
Running through them on the Television
Introversion, extra prisons
Tolerance for bad decisions
Exploitative be the saviour of corrective systems
Paranoid skepticism, schizophrenic masochism
Escapism running through them need a sedative
Medication, complication, devastation negative
I say devastation negative
Modernism has created modern prisons
Neo-McCarthyisms, new colonialisms
Pessimism makes decisions, hoodooism, hypnotism
Egoism, reagalism, humanism, legalism
Mysticism makes decisions from a purer prism
Magnetism, pragmatism, altruism, pacifism
Idealism, actualism, rehabilitation-ism
Skepticism, small fish (?) recognition (?) press conditions
Sex addiction, ex suspicion
Vexed conflict is secularism
See, people need to villainize
To alter this thing for their lives
Ugly human, ugly shame
Corporate greed in Jesus' name
Anarchism subdelusions
(?) with no solutions
Impositions, superstitions, violence and contradictions
Forged court conditions, no convictions
Compromised commercialism
I said compromised commercialism
War condition, vaults of wisdom
For electromagnetism
Hubris first (?) behaviourism, false religion, plagiarism
Vocals-ism, music-ism (?)
Innovation prohibition
Disconnection, broken wisdom
Broken system can't hold wisdom
Detainees in exorcism
Egotism, egotism, egotism, egotism, egotism, egotism, egotism, egotism
Alcoholism, fascism, rationalism
National tension, journalism
(?) paparazzoism
Mental alternative to plush touched eroticism
Social drug narcotics in a cult of inner superstition
Ritual materialisms, serialisms
Habitual inferior vision
He is, he is
Set to, set to
Self-destruct, self-destruct
He is, he is
Too cool, too cool
To be true[Verse 2]
Consumerism's running through them like a tumor in them
Separatism, skepticism, desperation, nepotism
Capitalism running through the Montezuma in em
Ageism, sexism, racism, fascism
Television running through em like an organism
Hedonism, egoism, systematic narcissism
To empty religious spontaneity is anarchism
Social Darwinism, barbarism, modern paganism
Major schizism, division
Selfishness is decision, greedy reductionism
Obstruction of the justice, occupation victimizationism
This is brainwashing, mind control, static stimulation in them
Time control mutilating soulful business decision
Helping people cope, selling dope from a new trope
Synthetic hope, life spent walking on a tightrope
Infantile masturbation, juvenile, no education
Mental castration, a generation forced to labor for a nation
Lots of means of production down, production down, corruption
They need the medication now
They need the medication now
Forced production in a state of mass combustion
Greed and lust and dangerous repercussions
To escape the rupture they speak of rapture
While still going after the things they spiritually capture
Faster and faster and faster
Terrorism running through them on their television
Introversion, indecision, reactionism, hypocrism
Phony nationalism, dishpan Africanism
Material hypnotims, monopoly militarist devi-isms
Intellectual fetishisms, sold on computers and televisions
Exploitative need a savior, correct the system
Paranoid skepticism, schizophrenic mechanisms
Escapism running through them need a sedative
Medication, complication, situation negative
Modernism has created modern prisons
Neo-McCarthyisms, new colonialisms
Pessimism makes decisions, hoodooism, hypnotism
Egoism, regalism, humanism, legalism
(?) small fish (?) recognition (?) recognition press conditions
Sex addiction
Vexed out rhythm, anarchism
Self-delusions, (?) with no solutions
Impositions, superstitions, brutalism, contradictions
False belief with no convictions
Compromised commercialism
Commercialism, recognition
Any decisions from a pure prism
Magnetism, pragmatism, altruism, actionism
Activism, pacifism, rehabilitation-ism
No false sensationalism, ape assimilation
Corporate cannibalism, psychological limitations
Allow no imitations, competition, closed assumption
Parasitism, negative simulation

Lauryn Noel Hill (born May 26, 1975 in South Orange, New Jersey) is an American musical artist, and record producer, initially establishing her reputation as the most visible and vocal member of the Fugees, then continued on to a solo career releasing The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Hill's works primarily in the neo-soul and alternative rap styles, among other influences from reggae and folk. After a four year hiatus, she released the controversial MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, a live recording of original material except for ‘So Much Things to Say’ and ‘The Conquering Lion’. She soon denounced her fame and began writing more spiritually and socially conscious songs.

Hill is noted as a humanitarian, and in 1996 she received an Essence Award for work which has included the 1996 founding of the Refugee Project, an outreach organization that supports a two-week overnight camp for at-risk youth, and for supporting well-building projects in Kenya and Uganda, as well as for staging a rap concert in Harlem to promote voter registration.

In 1999's Grammy Awards, Hill was nominated eleven times and won Album of the Year (beating Madonna's critically acclaimed album Ray of Light), Best New Artist, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album, setting a new record for a female performer.

Hill has four children with retired (American) football player Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae music icon, Bob Marley: Zion David Marley, born 1997, Selah Louise Marley, born 1998, and second son Joshua, born 2002. A fourth child, John, was born in 2003 and the couple married soon after.

Early life

Lauryn Hill was born in South Orange, New Jersey. Hill was the second of two children born to high school English teacher Valerie Hill and computer programmer Mal Hill. As a child, Hill incessantly listened to her parents' Motown and 1960s soul records. Music was a central part of the Hill home. Mal Hill sang at weddings, Valerie played the piano, and Lauryn's older brother Melaney played the saxophone, guitar and drums.

Hill graduated from Columbia High School (New Jersey) in Maplewood, New Jersey. Hill was an active student, cheerleader, and performer. She began her acting career at a young age, and started performing music in 1987. In 1988, 13-year old Hill appeared as an Amateur Night contestant on It's Showtime at the Apollo. Hill sang her own version of William "Smokey" Robinson's song "Who's Lovin' You?". A nervous Hill sung far away from the mic and was heckled at first; but persisted and finished her song to a standing applause, though she did not win.

Hill was childhood friends with actor Zach Braff and they both graduated from Columbia High School in 1993. Braff mentions inviting Hill to his bar Mitzvah in 1988.[1]

Hill appeared on the soap opera, As The World Turns as Kira Johnson. In December 1993, she starred in "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" as Rita Louise Watson. In the film, she performed the songs "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" (a duet with Tanya Blount) and "Joyful,Joyful" . It was in this role, as Rita, that she first came to national prominence, with Roger Ebert calling her "the girl with the big joyful voice". Although Sister Act I and II were originally conceived as vehicles for comedian Whoopi Goldberg, the second installment won Lauryn equal notice.

Her other acting work includes the play Club XII with MC Lyte, and the motion pictures King of the Hill (as Arletta the Elevator Operator), Hav Plenty (1997), and Restaurant (1998). She appeared on the soundtracks to Conspiracy Theory in 1996 (on the track "Can't Take My Eyes Off You") and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood in 2002 (on the track "Selah").

Her most recent album (mixtape) entitled "The Re-Education of Lauryn Hill" was released in 2007.
